Game 85 WPA: How do you stop a charging Rhino? Nats 8, MIL 5

New, 8 comments

Take away his credit card!! Har, har! When the charging Rhino is Wilson Ramos, however, turns out you can't stop him.

You can't stop him.  You can only hope to contain him.

  • Not bad, kid: Taylor Jordan (+9.0%) makes the best of what might be his last start in the bigs this year, going 5.2 IP, striking out 3, walking none, and giving up 2 ER.
  • Productive: Ian Desmond (+16.8%) is 3-4 with a walk. Jayson Werth (+17.8%) is 3-3 with a walk and a go-ahead RBI single in the 1st (+10.0%).
  • Clutch (if that existed): Adam LaRoche (+7.7%) is 2-4 with a game-tying RBI in the 1st (+11.6%).
  • Not so sharp: Drew Storen (-32.3%) fans two, walks none, but gives up 2 bombs in his inning of relief work, for 3 ER that tie the game.
  • WIL-SOONNNNNNNNN! Wilson Ramos (+43.4%) is still getting comfortable in his first game off the DL, going 3-4 with 5 RBI, including a two-run single in the 6th (+6.3%) and a two-out, three-run dinger to put the Nats ahead for good in the 7th (+36.8%).
